My new policy on Plus Sharing - I plus share as a lightweight alternative to resharing to an opt out circle. If you see posts I have plussed in your main stream, then you're currently in that circle.

If you don't want to see the posts I plus-share in your home stream you have three ways to get rid of it:

1) You can reply here to request to be removed from my PlusSharing circle. I will remove you from my PlusSharing circle and you'll see no more of it.

or

2) You can uncircle me and follow my collections instead. My two public collections are postcards from cutty and everything else.

or

3) You can simply uncircle me. If you're not interested in the artwork and posts I reshare via plus-sharing, you may not be interested in the other stuff I post and reshare anyway.

My impression of MeWe's import announcement?

It sounds very deceptive to me. What they DON'T say is that you'll be paying for the service. Free MeWe is limited to 8GB, so importing more than 8GB of posts means you've got to pay.

In contrast, the F+ME export tool has been consistently upfront about the $20 fee for exporting more than the free limit.

MeWe? Not a peep.

I think this is a desperate bid to generate some revenue from all these G+ freeloaders. Which would actually be okay if they were upfront about it. Instead, though, they're being deceptive.

And this is no surprise. They've been deceptive before and got away with it, among the MeWe "true believers". They lied about Public posts, and have shown no signs of owning up to their lies about it. There are still no true Public posts - posts visible to and linkable for the outside internet. They're only visible to people within MeWe.

The way they're announcing and hyping this service is consistent with this pattern of deception. The wording is deceptive (making it sound like the feedback is to the importer itself rather than just the announcement), and the fact that it's announced a month in advance means that people won't realize they're tricked until weeks from now. In the meantime, the deceptive campaign will have hopefully tricked people into joining MeWe.

It's the same pattern of deception as the Public posts. They make deceptive promises, knowing the "true believers" will repeat them and even embellish them.

This is not the pattern of behavior of a trustworthy enterprise.

And sure ... most people won't be affected by the 8GB limit. But here's the thing - those people aren't the ones paying the bills. It's the "big fish" users who are paying the bills. And they're the ones who will be pissed off at being deceived.

That's not a solid business practice. Solid businesses are nice to the ones paying the bills. Solid businesses build trust with their paying customers, rather than trick them with deception.

That's not a serious business strategy. It's a scammer desperately trying to allay the VC investors while figuring out their next scam.

This is not the pattern of behavior of a trustworthy enterprise.

Oh, I'm now working on a Client-Side Filter userscript to provide "Collections" and "Communities" on pluspora (diaspora). The basic idea is to add PERSONAL HASHTAGS and MODERATED HASHTAGS.

Personal hashtags are like "Collections" - only one user is allowed to post to that hashtag. Any errant posts are filtered out.

Moderated hashtags are like "Communities" - only members are allowed to post to that hashtag, and only moderators are allowed to flag posts for deletion. Any errant posts are filtered out.

This can't be done with pure CSS like multi-column streams, so I'm learning how to use Tampermonkey userscripts. I'm hoping to have something implemented by this weekend or next.

I have developed CSS styles to provide multi-column streams for Diaspora, Mastodon, Hubzilla, and Tumblr. It's possible that the Hubzilla version will work on Friendica with little or no modification. Anyone want to try it?
G+ style Multi-Column Streams in pluspora, Mastodon, Hubzilla, and Tumblr

I've put together CSS styles which provide multi-column Streams in various social media platforms. This has a huge effect on browsing speed. To use them, you:

1) Download Stylus plugin (Chrome, Firefox or Opera): https://add0n.com/stylus.html

2) Install desired Multi-Column style from here: https://userstyles.org/users/773238

Enjoy!

THIS

“Calling a Black POTUS married 25 yrs to 1 wife with 2 children, no mistresses, affairs or scandals, ‘the antichrist’ but a white POTUS married thrice, 5 kids by 3 women, mistresses, affairs & scandals, ‘God‘s anointed,’ proves your religion is white supremacy.”

Full flow engines: run all the fuel and oxidizer through the preburners that drive the fuel and oxidizer pumps. The advantage is that all that extra extra fuel or extra oxidizer in the preburner cools the preburner exhaust immensely. That saves quite a bit of wear and tear on the pump's turbine blades.
